Springboard Media Training Ltd is a specialist recruitment agency for the creative and digital media industries. Launched in 2014, Springboard Media Training has been working to set up an apprenticeship solution for a sector dominated by small businesses, sole traders and freelancers.
Springboard Media Training Ltd was set up by Martina Porter in response to feedback from creative and digital media employers. Martina has worked on Creative and Digital Media Apprenticeships since they were launched in 2010. During that time she has worked with a variety of employers and colleges, delivering training and assessing candidates for employers such as BBC, ITV, Global Radio as well as SMEs. While, the industry has embraced apprenticeships at the medium-to-large scale employer end, SMEs and sole traders have been unable to show their support for the scheme due to the project-based nature of the creative and digital media industries. Springboard Media Training can provide continuity of employment for the apprentices by creating a network of small businesses that engage apprentices on a project-by-project basis. We are also able to provide long-term placements up to 18 months in duration.
